Battle Of The Moon


Ahhhhhh I liked this one :) It was very fun to paint. I wanted to have 2 creatures battling.... One more n the good side than the other but as equally badass as eachother :P So I chose a beastly werewolf leaping onto a fiery Unicorn. Originally the werewolf was more exaggerated but it made it look cartoony and took the element of 'who would win' out of it. So I kept it pretty even between the two beasts.

Id like to think I have gave the unicorn some bad ass vibes to it considering they are usually associated with little girls and the colour pink (not that there is anything wrong with the colour pink lol).

But yes - the battle pose is done... Who will win :O... the ferocious werewolf or the fired up unicorn... bare in mind fur is extremely flammable ;) haha

This took about 6 hours from start to finish and was painted in photoshop on a cintiq. The references I looked at was a photo of myself to get the hands right... and a picture of a horses anatomy to see how to paint it :D

Hope you guys like it :)

Ahhh sorry guys... wasnt happy with the colour balance :( ... had to add some shiz to it!

I like it

Now this was a cool piece because its got some deep color love the horse and other element that center element seems like it could have more of a glow


Never spent too much time looking around the art portal but dude this is amazing. Just to make sure it's alright with you, there's a music contest coming up where you base the song off a drawing from the art portal, do you mind if i use this? Cheers and amazing work.

What a fiery blend of colors in which to portray this clash of wild beasts! It's forceful, intent and violently colorful; effectual. Love it.


Im not a huge fan of unicorns but...Thats 1 good looking animal right there! The light blue lights on it look kinda like a Twilight(LoZ Realm)being and Tron combined.

Good, Good! GOOD!
